Tell me about Franklin's people
Franklin serves an increasingly diverse student population.
In the 2001-2002 school year:
40 of the 60 staff members are certified
teachers. Nine teachers are dually certified
(five ESL & regular certification, four Special
Education & regular certification).
The student body is 62% Caucasian, 13% Latino, 12%
African American, 12% Asian.
25% of students qualified for free and reduced priced
13% of the students qualified for ESL. 75% of
these students receive free/reduced lunches.
5% of the student qualified for special education. 33%
of special education students receive free/reduced lunches.
Hmong and Spanish speakers compose most of the
Limited English Proficient (LEP) populations.
This diversity has led Franklin to develop robust
Title 1, Special Education and LEP (Limited English Proficient) programs to adequately serve students.
